Birthmarked is one of those fantasy books that I normally steer away from. I honestly can’t remember why I picked it up but I am glad I did. I read it really quickly. I enjoyed every minute of it and I almost started the sequel but then I decided to wait until the third one was out, too, read them all in one sitting.
I’m writing this in the summer of 2012 and I know it will be coming out in fall of 2012, so by the time you read this, I might have already read them all.
If you’ve read them, too, let me know what you thought.
edited to add: I have now read the other two and loved those, too. If the subject interests you and you like young adult novels, I can recommend this series.
